- Comprehensive numerical presentation of dimensional instability in composites
- Quantitative analyses for predicting deformations in all types of composite materials
- Evaluation of mechanical, thermophysical, environmental stresses over time
- Unique aid in design of composites for specific application conditions
This book is a comprehensive introduction to the quantitative analysis of dimensional instability in composite materials. It will aid in predicting deformations in a wide range of composite materials products and parts, under mechanical, thermophysical, and environmental stresses over time. Written by an internationally known expert on the analysis of composites, this new work brings together the best quantitative methods and currently known data for understanding how composites become unstable over time. The technical insights and information in this book offer a practical foundation for engineering composite materials with better stability and increased performance.
